WAFU Cup of Nations

Ghana v Nigeria for Wafu cup final

Ghana coach Maxwell Konadu believes his ideal game plan smothered Niger in their 2-0 win to reach the final of the 2017 WAFU Cup of Nations on Thursday, September 21.

The Black Stars recovered from a 2-0 defeat to the Super Eagles in the final Group A fixture to beat Niger 2-0 in the semifinals on Thursday, setting up another epic encounter with Nigeria. The Ghanaians topped the group while the Nigerians finished second in the group.

"We know how they operate but it'll not be easy".

"We are going to face Nigeria again, of course, they are a tough side. We are more than ready to confront them and give them more than they expect", the coach said. We hope that we keep that composure in the finals on Sunday so that we can put smiles on the faces of Ghanaians. Isaac Asiamah, "money is not our main motivation here, we are professionals and this is also a chance to build on our career, if anyone wins a contract with teams like Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United, you the player would benefit so we have the self motivation to win for ourselves too".

He said, "Rabiu is experienced, plays regularly for his club and he has over many seasons proved to be a consistent scorer".

The implication is that Ghana's B team has little to look forward to before the qualifying campaign for the 2020 CHAN, and therefore will throw everything into this encounter to have sweet memories in the meantime.

But Ghana coach, Maxwell Konadu, believes that their tactics against Niger could do the work against Nigeria. "We were very tactful and now we turn our attention to the final against Nigeria".

Meanwhile, sports minister, Solomon Dalung, Nigeria Football Federation president, Amaju Pinnick, Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr and the NFF General Secretary, Mohammed Sanusi, are expected to be in Ghana for the match.
